Freeman Out Of Hull Tie

Lee Johnson revealed the midfielder rolled his ankle in Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers and will not be risked against the Tigers.

The head coach hinted he will continue to mix things up with his team selection as City target a place in the quarter-finals.

“We should be fresh enough – we’ve had a run of games but we’ve got a decent squad this year and if we need to make changes we can,” Johnson told Bristol City Player HD.

“We need to assess how everybody is today before we select a team for tomorrow.

“It’s an important game for us and we do trust the squad – I see all of our players as first team players.

“Sometimes it’s horses for courses and sometimes it’s about giving someone a go who deserves it. Tomorrow will be no different, but it’s a game we want to win.”

Bobby Reid will be given every chance to prove his fitness after sitting out the Blackburn game with a dead leg, but Jamie Paterson is cup-tied having already appeared in this season’s competition for former club Nottingham Forest.
